If one of your goals this year is to up your fitness game, these nonjudgmental fitness apps will support you (not shame you) to help you achieve your workout goals in 2019. If you haven't yet used apps to support your workout, fitness apps are becoming the new normal. In fact, the Worldwide Survey of Fitness Trends for 2019 noted that apps have moved up 15 spots on the fitness trend ladder. While there are plenty of free fitness apps, even the subscription-based apps offer guidance for a fraction of the cost of going to the gym, and they allow you to work out on your own time and set your own pace.
Fitness apps are "a great way to start moving the needle on the awareness and education required to produce lifestyle changes," Dr. Kamal Jethwani, senior director of Connected Health Innovation at Partners HealthCare and assistant professor of dermatology at Harvard Medical School, said on Harvard Health. It's kind of like having your own personal trainer that you carry in your pocket, and you want that trainer to be as supportive and non-judgmental as possible. So, which apps can provide you with support and motivation to stick with your fitness routine? Check out these apps to meet your 2019 health and fitness goals.
